and that is our witness today, secretary sebelius. so i would urge my colleagues to stop hyperventilating. the problems with healthcare.gov are unfortunate and we should investigate them and then every american will have access to affordable health insurance. thank you, mr. chairman. >> before we swear in secretary sebelius, i want to clarify energy and commerce committee practice for swearing in of witnesses. the committee typically has two types of hearings. oversight hearings and hearings that focus on legislation and policy. secretary sebelius, for example, has testified previously before our committee to discuss issues relating to hhs budget or other policy matters. as is the case with all policy witnesses, secretary sebelius was not required to take an oath prior to testifying. today's hearing is different. it's an oversight hearing. it is a long standing committee practice to swear in all witnesses at oversight hearings whether they are private citizens or cabinet secretaries. >> mr. chairman, i thank you for your comments. i just want to join you in simply explaining that swearing

. secretary sebelius appeared before this committee and repeatedly said obama care was ready. it clearly wasn't. doesn't the failed launch indicate many individuals are going to have to at least have as much difficulty complying with the individual mandate as big business had with the employer mandate, yet from the announcement last night, you've only given individuals a six-week delay. cms announced 700,000 people had submitted applications for exchange coverage nationwide, but with all the challenges you have been facing, there are some serious questions about what these applicants know. cbs news reported, "the shop and browse feature is not giving consumers a real picture. in some cases, people could end up paying double what they see on the website." so how many applicants applied based on the wrong premium information, do you know? >> the completed applications were done, the 700,000, these were individuals who completed applications and figured out if they were eligible for tax credit. i do not know where cbs news is getting their information about erroneous tax credits, so i can't addr

. chairman. thank you, secretary sebelius for your presence here today and your testimony. while i, too, am frustrated with the flawed rollout of healthcare.gov, i do appreciate your longstanding commitment to improving the health care options for all americans. and fixing this website quickly. i think it's important to note that in my home state of california, and other states, as well, the new exchange marketplace, we call it covered california, is working. and rates are as much as 29% less than those that they found on the marketplace last year. i'm thankful my constituents now have this option, and as i look around to implementation nationwide, it seems clear to me that political decisions in individual states have really made the difference for consumers. the governors and legislators, state legislators, that embraced this law are delivering for their communities, but those elected who are trying to ignore the opportunities presented and continue to throw up roadblocks should not now seem surprised that there are significant bumps along the way. this seems, to me, to be completely disi

governors including jennifer granholm janet napolitano kathleen sebelius three louisiana and west virginia passed some of democratic control of both houses. even florida supposedly controversial law passed the state senate unanimously. when illinois strengthened its long-standing law in 2004 state senator barack obama cosponsored the bill that was unanimously approved. conversely many so-called red states oppose a duty to retreat and even more restrictive states courts have held that retreat is required when preventing serious crime. indeed it's universal crucible that a person can use force when she reasonably believes is necessary to defend defend against a minute use of unlawful force. where there is no duty to retreat she is further justified in using deadly force if she recently believes it's necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm. it's not an easy defense to assert and it certainly doesn't mean you can shoot first and ask questions later. these laws aren't a license to be a vigilante or behave recklessly. they protect law-abiding citizens. that is why this debate is emma. in
